Abstract

The rock on which these notes have been written
occurs as a basaltic flow in a small promontory, on the far
side from Hobart, of Sandy Bay.
The geological age of basaltic flows and tuffs is given
by Mr. R. M. Johnston (Systematic Account of the Geology
of Tasmania, p. 249 et seq.) as being younger than the
tertiary leaf-beds, and from the occurrence of this rock
and its associates, sections of which can clearly be seen on
the Brown's River Road, there seems to be no reason for
doubting that the age ascribed is approximately correct.
